National Homebrew Day

Saturday, May 7 is National Homebrew Day! Yes, that's a real holiday; it was officially recognized by Congress on May 7, 1988, and it's always the first Saturday of May. Here's the RateBeer article that clued me in, and here's the Big Brew celebration page on the Brewers Association website. I'm sure I'll post more on this as May 7 approaches.

But Did He Inhale?...

Anti-Castro Majority Leader Tom DeLay enjoys a fine Cuban cigar

Sometimes a cigar is just a cigar. And sometimes, according to House Majority Leader Tom DeLay, a cigar is an economic prop to a brutal totalitarian regime. Arguing against loosening sanctions against Cuba last year, DeLay warned that Fidel Castro "will take the money. Every dime that finds its way into Cuba first finds its way into Fidel Castro's blood-thirsty hands.... American consumers will get their fine cigars and their cheap sugar, but at the cost of our national honor."

I like this part of the story: Asked about the Majority Leader's consumption of a Cuban cigar, his spokesman Dan Allen replied there has been "no change in our Cuban policy."

The right wingers will probably start saying stuff like:

Powerline : " We still haven't been able to verify that the cigar in question is actually a Cuban cigar at all. Assrocket says that they counterfeit Cuban's all the time. I have been calling TIME magazine, and right now they aren't returning my calls which smells fishy to me.

Powerline Update: We have just been emailed from an anonymous source that reveals the the cigar in question actually came from Harry Reid's office.

Powerline Update II: The cigar came from one of Mel Martinez's aids. Tom didn't realize that it was a Cuban cigar so he smoked it. That aid has since been fired."
